designtrend.com – History announced Tuesday, Dec. 16, that “Vikings” will return for its third season Thursday, Feb. 19, at 10:00 p.m. ET, TVLine reported.

The 10-episode third season of the Emmy-nominated historical drama will follow Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) as the current king of Denmark.

In the Season 2 finale, Ragnar took the crown from the King Horik (Donal Logue) after the latter plotted a treacherous plan to attack Kattegat and kill the earl along with his whole family.

King Horik felt that Ragnar was stealing his power from him. So, in an attempt to get rid of the earl, King Horik devised the menacing plan, which ultimately failed after his supposed ally Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard), betrayed him.

Several actors are joining the show for its third installment.

English actress Jennie Jacques will portray Judith, the daughter of Saxon King Aelle (Ivan Kaye) and bride to Aethelwulf (Moe Dunford), who is the son of Saxon King Ecbert (Linus Roache). She eventually becomes the mother of notable historical figure Alfred the Great, according to Deadline.

Ben Robson, on the other hand, will play Kalf, Lagertha’s (Katheryn Winnick) trusted second in command. Lagertha, aka Earl Ingstad of Hedeby, leaves Kalf in charge when she goes to raid with Ragnar. But Lagertha may have underestimated Kalf, who will quickly make himself a major player, and can be a central figure in future seasons, according to TV Guide.

Canadian actors Lothaire Bluteau and Kevin Durand also landed roles in the third season of the show. Bluteau will portray Emperor Charles of France while Durand takes on the role of the Wanderer, a stranger who is not what he seems, The Hollywood Reporter reported.

French actress Morgane Polanski (daughter of Roman Polanski) is also onboard. He will be Princess Gisla, Emperor Charles’ daughter and his main advisor.

Speaking at the San Diego Comic-Con last month, series creator Michael Hirst revealed that Season 3 of the historical drama will feature the biggest adventure the Vikings have faced yet: the raid on Paris.

“I always knew that one of the big features of Season 3 was going to be the attack on Paris,” Hirst dished about the upcoming season, according to SheKnows.

Since the series premiered on History channel in March 2013, Ragnar’s gang has already raided England several times, but in Season 3, the group of Vikings is heading to 9th century France, where they will take a fleet of 100 ships into battle, according to Blastr.

In the said French raid, the Vikings will go into battle against Emperor Charles and Princess Gisla, Zap2it reported. This storyline, however, will not conclude by the time the Season 3 ends.

“This isn’t a storyline that’s going to go away in a couple episodes,” Hirst said. “It’s a storyline that’s going right through the end of Season 3, into Season 4, and it has huge impact on several of our leading characters.”

hitflix.com – A month after setting a nebulous February 2015 premiere for its latest invasion, History’s “Vikings” now has a specific premiere date.

Season 3 of “Vikings” will hit the shore on Thursday, February 19 at 10 p.m. The 10-episode season will follow up on Ragnar’s elevation to King and will find the scruffy Norsemen taking aim at a little French city known as Paris.

In addition to Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen, Kathryn Winnick and Replacement Bjorn Alexander Ludwig (and others), the new season will be bringing back Linus Roache’s Ecbert and introducing a slew of new characters.

“Lost” and “The Strain” veteran Kevin Durand will play Harbard, a wanderer who shows up in Kattagat and fills in for the absent Viking men. Ben Robson will play Kalf, new second-in-command to Lagertha. And on the French side of the story, Lothaire Bluteau will play Emperor Charles, with Morgane Polanski as his daughter Gisla.

As always, “Vikings” will continue to be written by creator Michael Hirst.

History previously teased the February 2015 premiere date when it sent a number of reporters pre-Thanksgiving turkey legs. They were yummy.

While “Vikings” didn’t make my Top 10 for 2014 and it probably won’t even make my Top 30, it remains a surprisingly sturdy drama that I respect for its outstanding production values, gritty action scenes and hints of spirituality. Travis Fimmel has been an unexpectedly effective leading man and Kathryn Winnick’s Lagertha is one of TV’s most complicated female characters. The second season was darker and tighter than the first and I’m looking forward to returning to this world.

You looking forward to the return of “Vikings”?

Screenrant.com – One of the more anticipated tentpoles arriving in the first quarter of 2016 (not counting that intimate drama that Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill are starring in) is Warcraft, which is Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones’ film adaptation of the popular game property. Principal photography on the movie has already been completed, since the project will require extensive post-production work (somewhere in the vicinity of 20 months‘ worth) in order to properly realize its fantasy world setting and characters on the big screen.

Teasers for Warcraft have been shown at the International Comic-Con for the past two years, but today at the 2014 Blizzard Entertainment’s BlizzCon gaming convention in Anaheim, California, Legendary Pictures, Atlas Entertainment, and Blizzard Entertainment (along with distributing partner Universal Pictures) offered those fans in attendance a special treat: official casting and character details from Jones’ film, along with artwork promoting the warring clans in the movie.

Jones, who has appeared at BlizzCon in the past, was present at Warcraft‘s 2014 panel along with Chris Metzen (Blizzard Entertainment’s Senior Vice President of Story and Franchise Development), the film’s Oscar-winning VFX supervisor Bill Westenhofer (Life of Pi), and Warcraft actor Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim).

Kazinsky’s Warcraft costars officially include Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger), Ben Foster (Lone Survivor), Ben Schnetzer (The Book Thief), Ruth Negga (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Paul Patton (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Toby Kebbel (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Clancy Brown (Sleepy Hollow), and Daniel Wu (The Man with the Iron Fists).

Here are the list of characters (and their official descriptions) these actors will playing in the film; they are divided into the two opposing armies (which Warcraft fans will recognize), known as the Alliance and the Horde.

THE ALLIANCE
Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel) – The lead protagonist for the Alliance, Lothar is a war hero who has sacrificed everything to keep the people of Azeroth safe.

King Llane Wrynn (Dominic Cooper) – King Llane is the leader of the Alliance city of Stormwind and a beacon of hope to its people in a time of darkness.

Medivh (Ben Foster) – Known as ‘the Guardian,’ Medivh is a mysterious and reclusive protector who wields formidable power.

Khadgar (Ben Schnetzer) – Khadgar is a gifted young mage, embarking on a daring search for the truth.

Lady Taria (Ruth Negga) – Taria is the royal Queen of Stormwind, King Llane’s great love and most trusted counsel.

Garona (Paula Patton) – Caught between the Alliance and the Horde, Garona is a strong-willed survivor who must decide where her true loyalty lies.

THE HORDE
Durotan (Toby Kebbel) – The lead protagonist for the Horde, Durotan is the noble Chieftain of the Frostwolf Clan, battling to save his people and his family from extinction.

Orgrim (Rob Kazinsky) – Orgrim is Durotan’s right hand and a brave warrior destined to wield the Doomhammer: a weapon of orc legend.

Blackhand (Clancy Brown) – Known as ‘The Destroyer’, Blackhand is one of orc-kind’s most fearsome and titanic warchiefs.

Gul’Dan (Daniel Wu) – Gul’dan is a supreme orc ruler, fueled by a dark magic that even he cannot control.

Jones revised the original Warcraft script draft penned by Charles Leavitt; the latter also co-wrote the upcoming Seventh Son film adaptation for Legendary Pictures. It would appear that previous reports asserting that the film is drawing inspiration in no small amount from the earlier installments in the original Warcraft game property are at least partially accurate, and the screenplay has been praised by many an actor in the past (including those who aren’t even appearing in the film).

Will Warcraft become the next big fantasy epic cinematic franchise, especially now that Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth movie saga is drawing to a close? Only time will tell…

Warcraft opens in U.S. theaters on March 11th, 2016.

Flickeringmyth.comPaul Risker chats with Vikings star Travis Fimmel…

In a special week long feature to coincide with the home entertainment release of Vikings series 2, Flickering Myth sits down in conversation with the cast and creator Michael Hirst to go behind the scenes of the critically acclaimed historical drama. First up leading man Travis Fimmel a.k.a. Ragnar Lothbrok reflects on the journey so far…

Paul Risker: Ragnar’s arc in season one is a fascinating one. He grows from explorer to having something of a swagger or arrogance about him. How does it feel playing a character with that kind of arc?
Travis Fimmel: I don’t know whether its arrogance or he just likes women. In season two he still feels righteous about what he does. He wants to help his people out, and he certainly wants to be a guy that’s known for exploring, and being the first Scandinavian to have been certain places. I think his heart is in the right place, and he’ll do anything for the people around him.

He doesn’t have many people that he can seek advice from, and so sometimes he has to say, “No, we are doing it my way.” Otherwise if he’d listen to some of the other ideas that were thrown in they wouldn’t get anywhere. A lot of the time successful people who achieve their goals sacrifice a lot of human things – family and such. There are a lot of rich people that aren’t very happy because they get rich by sacrificing a load of things, and it’s that old saying that “Money doesn’t make you happy.”

PR: So he’s a noble man, but with a brutal edge?
TF: [Laughs] Yeah I like that!

PR: I have to ask about the Blood Eagle episode which is horrific, absolutely horrific. What was your reaction when Michael told you that’s the way the story line was going to play out?
TF: Oh I loved it, and it was shot so well by Kari Skogland – beautifully shot and beautifully written. Thorbjørn Harr is such a great actor, and it’s stuff like that makes our show a bit different. We can’t show everything that happens, and so they need to be clever how they shoot things. You can’t show cutting lungs out and such, but it’s amazing how they can portray that by being smart about it.

PR: The first season is focused on introducing the characters and the world to the audience. At the end of the first and on into the second season you don’t have to play it safe, and you are able to play around with things a little more. Is there a feeling of liberation when making that transition from the first to the second season?
TF: Well every actor hates exposition, and some actors really like lines. So it’s much easier the more seasons you do because everybody knows the characters, which makes it so much more enjoyable; more relationship driven. You don’t have to explain everything, and the audience are smarter than any of us. There is stuff that the audience pick up in a show that we miss. But exposition comes from way above the people here and production. There are people that think, oh the audience don’t get this, but the audience get it better than anybody – it comes from higher up.

Masterherald.com – The History Channel’s popular historical drama series Vikings is currently in production for season three. The show portrays actor Travis Fimmel as Ragnar Lothbrok, a legendary Viking hero of Scandinavian folklore who was said to be the scourge of France and England in the ninth century.

After the tumultuous and bloody events closing the second season, Ragnar has consolidated his power. After dispatching both Jarl Borg and King Horik, Lothbrok has taken the crown of Denmark for himself, ascending to the throne. The former farmer who became a lord has now become the ruler.

With the armies and fleets of Denmark now at Ragnar’s disposal, season three of Vikings will no doubt be heating up the battlefield a bit. Creator and showrunner Michael Hirst has stated that the next chapter of the story will see Lothbrok and his men invade France and besiege the walls of Paris itself.

This will be a massive battle, much larger than the smaller engagements and raids thus far seen on the show. For the siege of Paris, the show’s creators are using CGI to recreate Ragnar’s large fleet of 100 Viking longboats.

The English have already been dealing with invasions from Ragnar and his men, and in season three we will see the French response to this as well. Canadian actor Lothaire Buteau has been cast to play Emperor Charles the Bald of France, the grandson of Emperor Charlemagne.

Also joining the show are Morgane Polanski as Princess Gisla, the daughter and adviser of Emperor Charles. Jennie Jacques will debut as a woman named Judith, the mother of the future English king Alfred the Great, and actor Kevin Durand will appear as a mysterious new character called the Wanderer.

Lead actor Travis Fimmel told reporters that the next story arc will be more action-packed, focusing more on Ragnar’s violent expeditions than on the drama going on back home in Kattegat. Previous seasons of Vikings premiered in February and March, so the third chapter may debut around that time next year.
